Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. Reports Financial Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2020
NEWPORT, RI - May 13, 2020 - Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. (“Pangaea” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: PANL), a global provider of comprehensive maritime logistics solutions, announced today its results for the three months ended March 31, 2020.
1st Quarter Highlights

Net loss attributable to Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. was $6.8 million for three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to $3.7 million of net income for the same period of 2019.
Non-GAAP adjusted net loss attributable to Pangaea Logistics Solutions Ltd. of $4.0 million as compared to $1.4 million net income for the three months ended March 31, 2019.
Net loss per share was $0.16 for three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to earnings per share of $0.09 for the same period of 2019.
Adjusted loss per share of $0.09, compared to adjusted earnings per share of $0.03 for the three months ended March 31, 2019.
Pangaea's TCE rates were $10,508 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and $12,029 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 while the market average for the first quarter of 2020 was approximately $5,920, giving the Company an overall average premium over market rates of approximately $4,588 or 78%.
Adjusted EBITDA of $2.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020.
Total revenue increased to $95.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, from $79.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 due to an increase in shipping days.
At the end of the quarter, Pangaea had $42.5 million in cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents.

Ed Coll, Chief Executive Officer of Pangaea Logistics Solutions, commented:

"The first quarter of 2020 was a challenging one for the industry on many levels. The dry bulk shipping market was weak as is usually expected in the first quarter, and the move to more expensive IMO 2020 compliant fuel increased bunker expenses during the first part of the quarter. The disruptions caused by the coronavirus global pandemic added to these challenges. Our practice remains steadfast in the face of these disruptions; we limit downside risks, avoid speculation, and serve our customers. This adherence delivered a premium of 78% over reported market indexes for the quarter, resulting in an adjusted net loss of $3.9 million in the face of a pandemic. We especially want to note that the unprecedented volatility of oil markets created a $2.9 million unrealized mark-to-market loss for the quarter on fuel hedges purchased against long term cargo commitments. Because we generally lock in margins on long term contracts of affreightment rather than hold bunker swaps, we report mark-to- market losses over the short term in order to protect our future operating margins as we perform for our customers under our COAs."

Mr. Coll added, "Following our cargo-driven chartering strategy, we balanced our fleet by redelivering vessels to their owners on schedule, and chartered-in new tonnage at a lower cost to match our cargo requirements. We continue to take steps to solidify our business and we stand ready to expand when opportunities are uncovered. Our world will see the end of the current pandemic, and we thank our dedicated crew and shore-based team for their efforts in challenging conditions. We will hopefully all be wiser for our difficulties, contributions, and experiences. When we see opportunities in our business, we will take advantage of them when they arise and expand our business in traditional ship operations and non-traditional ship service. Until then, we are working on the home front to support our communities through the donation of masks, gloves and other personal protective equipment to our first responders."

Results for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019
Total revenue was $95.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared with $79.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019. The total number of shipping days performed increased 16% to 4,576, compared to 3,938 days during the first quarter of 2019.
The average TCE rate was $10,508 per day for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to an average of $12,029 per day for the same period in 2019. The achieved premium over the average market increased by $4,588 per day or 78% for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The total number of shipping days increased 16% to 4,576 in the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared to 3,938 for the same period in 2019, predominantly due to the increase in voyage days.






Liquidity and Cash Flows
Cash, restricted cash and cash equivalents were $42.5 million as of March 31, 2020, compared with $53.1 million on December 31, 2019.
At March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had working capital of $28.4 million and $37.1 million, respectively. Operating cash flows during the three months ended March 31, 2020 was a net outflow of $6.8 million as compared to a net inflow of $12.0 million during the same period of 2019.

Financing cash flows during the three months ended March 31, 2020 was a net outflow of $11.2 million as compared to net inflow of $5.1 million during the same period of 2019.

INFORMATION ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES. As used herein, “GAAP” refers to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. To supplement our consolidated financial statements prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, this earnings release discusses non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net revenue and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA. This is considered a non-GAAP financial measure as defined in Rule 101 of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s historical or future performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.






We use non-GAAP financial measures for internal financial and operational decision making purposes and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons of the performance and results of operations of our core business. Our management believes that non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the performance of our core business by excluding charges that are not incurred in the normal course of business. Non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal planning and comparisons to our historical performance and liquidity. We believe certain non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors as they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making and are used by our institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the performance and operational results of our core business.

Net transportation and service revenue. Net transportation and service revenue represents total revenue less the total direct costs of transportation and services, which includes charter hire, voyage and vessel operating expenses. Net transportation and service revenue is included because it is used by management and certain investors to measure performance by comparison to other logistic service providers. Net transportation and service revenue is not an item recognized by the generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or U.S. GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, or any other indicator of a company's operating performance required by U.S. GAAP. Pangaea’s definition of net transportation and service revenue used here may not be comparable to an operating measure used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS. Adjusted EBITDA represents income or loss from operations before depreciation, amortization and, when applicable, loss on sale and leaseback of vessel, loss on impairment of vessels, stock-based compensation and certain non-recurring charges.
